Getting annoyed with people timing out games rather than loosing

Postby ShodanHo » 06 November 2017, 16:23

I have noticed a trend recently where players who know they have lost the game will stop playing and wait to be timed out. Is anyone else experiencing this or am I just unlucky?

Of which games are you referring?

The server has been bad recently, which may have made it impossible to perform moves.

For which tables, it is quite apparent which board game is being discussed.

I havent experienced what you said. On the other hand, let me tell a story about a friend of mine:

He was had that issue one. He had a "disagreement" with a guy. The guy made mistakes and wanted to restart the game. My friend acceted once or twice. He didnt accepted the next one and the guy just stopped moving and was doing a move just before timing out so my friend couldnt finish the game (without surrendering, which he didnt want to). He went to the facebook page of BGA and sent a message. Got a quick reply asking for the table number. Then the mod went there. So maybe you can do the same?

(At the end of the story, well, the mod ended up closing the table and my friend got banned 3 days because of innapropriate language :P, so be nice ;) )

Sometimes people leave on the final round because they think it is over, but if they have more than 10 cards or they can produce on a windfall the program won't end until they discard or produce. Usually this is a pointless and forgettable action so it is easy to forget about it and leave prematurely.
